Hi,

Im playing now on my trial account and i wanted to try out pet battles. When i try to start it i got a message "Failed to create pet battle". I wonder if it is a bug or trial accounts can't do it at all.

There's nothing to fix. You can't do pet battles because a starter account can't have enough money to pay for the training.
They have to save some things for people who actually buy the game.

I have bought it. It costs 9g which is possible to get on a trial. The problem then is that when you click on a pet it says 'failed to create pet battle'.

I have a trial account too, and since it's on the same battle.net account as this paid account of mine, all the pets are shared.

So one day, I wanted to hop around on a lil' trial-char and kill innocent critters in Elwyn... And had the same problem:
"Failed to create pet battle".

Then I checked if that char even HAVE the pet battle ability, and it didn't - I was told to see the trainer.
-Then I logged on another char, on same trial account, and that char DID have the pet battle ability... Weird, I though, and tried again. Same result, "Failed to create pet battle".

After that, I assumed that trial accounts can't do pet battles, but I would love it if I am mistaken. Every once in a while, I love those little simple trial-chars for some strange reason, and they would go so well with pet battling :)

Keep in mind Yuvalal that the topic of discussion was Pet Battles with a Starter Edition, while the link you gave was for Pet Battles generally. :)

The only thing i have to say is; Blizzard, why?

It is so obvious that you guys care nothing about your player base and such, only about your own damn wallets. Why do i say this? Again, because you guys put something in the game, wave it infront of our faces and then give us the finger.

If you cant do pt battles on trial account, then why enable us to buy it?

This is literally why i stopped playing, all the things you do is suck money from your playerbase. You pretend to actually care about the status of the game, yet you keep on making worse content ( the last one was dragon soul, which.. as i predicted, people would be raiding for over a year) . By the way, why is the game 12,00 euro's a month, while the servers can be up if everyone pays 5 each month?.

If you only just upgraded it might not be enabled yet. Can take up to 72 hours to lift restrictions, other than levelling past 20.

You are also paying for development of future expansions, and to be honest, if you are paying nothing for the game why should you have access to all of it. If all you want to do is pet battles maybe Pokemon would be the game for you :D
